Southwark Cathedral Refectory Courtyard

The Refectory

As part of the Borough High Street Low Emission Neighbourhood, Better Bankside and Team London Bridge introduce #BetterAir Sensory Connections - 3 participatory 'walkshops' that will enable participants to discover different hidden and verdant spaces and tranquil routes either side of Borough of High Street.  

It is already understood that walking just one road back from a busy main road can halve the pollution pedestrians are exposed to, these walkshops will uncover some emerging tranquil routes being promoted to improve walking links between London Bridge and Bankside.

This walk focuses on sight as the key sense - and we will be inviting participants to draw and / photograph what they encounter - we will also lend them a pair of binoculars. We will give those less confident in drawing, some simple techniques so that they can accomplish a reasonable sketch. Participants will be invited to record and document what they find through sketching and photography.

All materials provided. Please meet at The Refectory Courtyard, on the north side of Southwark Cathedral.

This is the first of our 3-part, 3-day series.
